Some Celtic fans have discussed Australian midfielder Tom Rogic.
Celtic fans: Should Rogic be allowed to leave?
He's past his prime!
He's still a useful player
The Celtic Twitter account recently posted a message for Rogic, who signed for the club on the 17th of January in 2013. On his ninth anniversary as a Hoops player, many fans discussed his time at the club.
Interestingly, it was reported last month that there are suggestions that Rogic might be on the radar of Ange Postecoglou and Yokohama F. Marinos, which could be the reason behind the fan begging the club not to let him leave, but nothing has come of this thus far.
Don’t let him leave.

One full season of match-fit Tom Rogic is the dream.

The Australian joined the Hoops from A-League club Central Coast Mariners in the summer of 2013 for a fee of £400,000. Since joining, Rogic has made 178 appearances in all competitions for the Hoops and has racked up a tally of 37 goals and 31 assists.
He had missed the early part of the season due to a knee injury. He had suffered a knee injury even towards the end of last season, before which he had made 35 appearances in all competitions for the club and got a tally of five goals and six assists as well.
As per Transfermarkt, Rogic has missed 30 games to injury since the start of the 2018-19 season.
What do we think?
Rogic, who is valued at £2.7 million (as per Transfermarkt), certainly adds some goals and depth to the midfield, and being an attacking midfielder, he fits right into the 4-2-3-1 shape in the spot behind the striker. Injuries haven’t helped him but when fit, Rogic is a very effective option in that part of the pitch.
